You can literally lie down in her bed.

Katy Perry has been tirelessly promoting her fourth studio album, Witness, from hosting a three-day (!) live stream of her life on YouTube and performing on Saturday Night Live with Migos to appearing on "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden. Of course, the promotion doesn't stop there — she's hosting a pop-up at Kim Sing Theatre (718 N. Figueroa St.) in L.A.'s Chinatown this week. (Because are you even a pop star if you don't have your own pop-up these days?)

Perry opened the doors to the #KPWWW HQ (the same location where Perry was recorded for 96 hours) on Wednesday, inviting fans to shop exclusive Witness merch and experience "fun surprises," according to her team's tweet.

Based on some of her fan's tweets, the shop features a red short-sleeve tee with the phrase "Keep Calm Honey Imma Stick Around" ($30), a blue crewneck sweater that says "Bon Appetit" on the chest ($65) and a red-and-white gym bag that reads "Another One in the Basket" on the side ($45), among other pieces laden with lyrics from the album.

Perry has been in the news after The New York Times discussed her post-election awakening and how the old Katy Perry isn't a construct. ("And I'm not a con artist. I didn't con people, like, that was just me. And this is me now," she told writer Caryn Ganz.)

Aside from the merch, there are a number of Insta-ready setups to muse over: a colorful mural inspired by the singer's album-cover art; the round bed in which Perry slept on during her live stream; white cups featuring Witness-inspired doodles and Perry's famous dog, Nugget; and a pink-hued salon-style setup.

Entry is free for the pop-up, which is open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. through Friday, so be prepared to wait in line.
